I’m sure you’ve had someone say something that made you feel good for the rest of the day – or even for several days. You’ve likely also been told things that made you feel bad for hours or days. Words have a great deal of power to make others feel good or bad. This effect is even stronger when the words come from someone you love.
Don’t be fooled if it looks like your words have no effect on your bride. Unless she is a full on narcissist, or has given up on your marriage, your words do affect her, even if she hides it. Think about ways you can encourage and build her up with you words, and ways you can remove hurtful words from your marriage vocabulary.
